The 'Shroom:Issue LI/Brawl Tactics
Welcome, Brawlers, to BRAWL TACTICS! This month, in keeping with my Luigi theme, I will be covering Luigi's Mansion!
Luigi's Mansion is a medium sized stage based on Luigi's Mansion from the game of the same name, obviously. It has three floors avalable for brawling: the ground floor, the second floor, and the roof. There are also two panels that will float up and down on the sides of the stage.
The sides of the second floor are solid, so you can't drop through them like most of the other parts of the stage. This makes this part of the stage an excellent hiding place if there's something trying to shoot at you from above.
The pillars are collapsible, which makes this stage fun to bring down. If you strike the pillars enough, you can take the whole house down.
Luigi's mansion has a high frame, which means you need a fair amount of launch power to KO your opponents from the sky. But, if you knock them off the side, and they get stuck under the stage, there's really no hope. Like Pokemon Stadium, this stage has a root growing up from the middle, which means the sides hang over a bit- you will regret it if you don't aim your recovery move at the right angle.
All in all, Luigi's Mansion is not the most challenging place to have a battle, so if you're looking for a stage with not too many gimmicks, this one would be a good choice. Hope this helps you, Brawlers, and I'll see you next month!
